Defining 4×4 Driving with Jeep® in Toronto, ON
There are no finer off-roading vehicles than the Jeep®. With decades of four-wheel driving experience, the engineers at Jeep® have continued to refine and innovate 4×4 systems to let you overcome any terrain. But which 4×4 system is right for you, and which Jeep® vehicle comes equipped with it? We’ve put together a comprehensive list to help you find the perfect off-road vehicle for your adventures.
The flexible Selec-Trac® 4×4 system features a full-time mode which automatically switches from 2WD to 4WD when needed by your driving conditions. You get optimized traction on snow, ice, rocks and mud, but automatically revert to 2WD on even trails and clear roads to give you maximum fuel efficiency.

If you need added traction on wet or snow-covered surfaces, including sand and gravel, the Command-Trac 4×4 system provides.
